backside of the 5 x 7 Cinco-Seven pinhole camera
I epoxied rare-Earth (neodymium) magnets in the back and the camera box. The magnets are recessed into drilled holes and fit perfectly.
It works great and there's no fiddling around with elastics, bungee cords, latches, or dowels or pins to hold the filmholder in place.
The super magnets hold strong, so I'm very pleased with this design and will probably build all my pinhole cameras like this from now on....
